Abstract Molecular self-assembly under kinetic control has many opportunities leading to novel phenomena and applications. However, a mechanistic insight into the intricate kinetic behavior is still lacking. Herein, we demonstrate that even a subtle change in the molecular structure affects the kinetic behavior of metastable supramolecular assembles. Interestingly, the kinetic process influenced the size of the final outcomes (in this study, nanosheet structures) in a manner opposite to that… CONTINUE READING
